Reading Eggs is an online program for reading and math that has been around for a few years now. We’ve reviewed the program before and have loved using it each time we do. It’s a great interactive online program that my kids really enjoy using.
We were also gifted a copy of the new Reading Eggs Workbook 200 Essential Reading Skills for Kindergarten. It’s a great way to expand lessons off the computer and bring them in to real life. This helps make the lessons even more fun! You can find more Workbooks here: https://www.readingeggsshop.com/workbooks/
Reading Eggs has expanded their program to provide lessons for children ages 2-13, which would be for grade levels of Pre-K to around 8th. The program includes well over 100 lessons for your children to learn with. They’ve also expanded and added a Math section for student to learn with as well with an added subscription. Reading Eggs provides learning for comprehension, writing, spelling and so much more!
There is a placement test provided for you to use with your child in order to find the correct placement for them in the program so that they can begin learning at their personal level of the program and you don’t waste time by reteaching skills your child is already proficient in. This helps to encourage your child to continue learning and discourage boredom and frustration with learning.
The program is completely online and it does have different available packages for purchasing. It is a thorough reading program that really helps you teach your child important skills for reading. There are 4 programs now: Reading Eggs, Reading Eggs Junior, Reading Eggspress and Mathseeds. Reading Eggs is the original program. Reading Eggs Junior is designed for younger students to use as an introductory to reading. Reading Eggspress is developed for students who have some reading skills but need extra help developing better readings skills. Mathseeds is the math portion of the Reading Eggs program and helps students with basic math skills and memorization. All of the programs are wonderful to help your student learn and develop skills they need for reading and math learning.
There are different available packages for purchase and once you choose a program, you will create a log-in for your students so they can get started immediately. You can use the placement test for your child so that you can place them correctly and they can work through the program following the prompts fairly easily without a lot of help from you. The program is interactive and animated to help encourage your child’s love of learning. It covers all the important skills based on grade level and development of your child’s personal reading levels.
Additionally, Reading Eggs also now offers workbooks by grade level which you can use with your student as they work with the program at home! This is a great addition that’s been added recently. Workbooks go up to grade 5 for Reading and grade 3 for Math. They cost around $20 for each book.
200 Essential Reading Skills for Kindergarten workbook contains over 60 lessons covering over 200 skills for reading. Skills like comprehension, writing, spelling, phonics, phonemic awareness, high-frequency sight words, and more. The workbook is full color which we love. A yearly planner is included inside. Lessons include 4 worksheets each which can be used as you wish to or as directed in the lesson plan section. There are also 10 quizzes included.
Generally, you are expected to do one page a day for lessons and use the quiz as you follow along in the book. We just worked through the workbook pages as we went, allowing my child to do more or less as needed. The workbook is very adaptable for this.
This is a physical workbook. It is pre-printed and shipped to your door for your student to use. It contains 278 pages that are all in color. It features the same characters as the online program for reading. There is an adorable alphabet chart provided in the front of the book which is great for review for your child. The workbooks are not the same as the worksheets that are provided by the online program and provide completely different content than those lessons, though they do go along with the online lessons provided in the program itself. There is an award certificate in the back of the workbook to be used at the completion of the workbook.
Y’all this workbook is seriously adorable with beautifully designed pages throughout. I love it! I cannot express enough how well-designed and colorful it truly is. The ink used is vibrant and eye catching. The characters are wonderful. The first page is a handwriting warm up with fun squiggles to get your student enticed to write and then you jump right in with letter writing, words and concepts. It’s just a lot of fun!
The Kindergarten level is pretty simple. Nothing too hard for your child to complete. The pages are not long at all but they do pack in a lot of learning. The only thing I dislike is that I don’t believe the pages are perforated for removing them from the workbook and it is not a lay-flat design which can make it hard to use for little kids to use. You could have the binding cut off and use it that way if needed though.
Jack isn’t quite ready for handwriting formation but he did well trying. We will continue to work on this with the workbook and other methods, especially in holding his pencil correctly. But he loved the imagery and loved trying to do the required work with the workbook.
